When schools transition from virtual to in-person learning, The Star Democrat will feature elementary school lunch menus again. Today, you will find information the five Mid-Shore school districts have shared about their school food service plans.

Bundled meals available for children will be delivered to children’s homes or daycare providers. The CCPS Division of Food and Nutrition Services is providing free breakfast and lunch to children, ages 2–18 around the county until the end of September (extension until Dec 30 is very possible).

There are no income or registration requirements.

For those who received meals this summer, service will begin again on Tuesday, Sept. 8. and families may opt out of delivery. For those who would like their children added to the delivery list, please call 410-479-3261 For updates, visit www.carolineschools.org/ccps-news/

Friendly reminder: Parents and guardians must still fill out your meal benefit form for school for when school resumes and to receive the other benefits associated with free/ reduced meals such as scholarships at Caroline recreation and parks, internet, AP test waivers, etc.

For menus, log onto www.myschoolmenus.com/instance/795/district/791.

During Phase 1, meals will be available for pick-up every Monday (Tuesday on those days when schools are closed on Monday) and Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m. Meals can be picked up from any school. Meals are also available at the Empowerment Center on Pine St. in Cambridge and at New Beginnings on Greenwood Ave.

If parents or guardians work during the day, childcare providers can pick up meals only if the child with them.

A student must be enrolled in an QACPS school to receive five days of breakfasts and lunches. The curbside meal service will be provided from noon to 2 p.m. on Mondays only. Students and/or families will need their student identification number in order to pick up a meal.

Pick-up sites are Bayside, Church Hill and Grasonville elementary schools, Queen Anne’s County High School and Sudlersville Middle School.

If a student will be attending one of the small group instructional programs at their school, a grab and go service will be provided to those students for breakfast and lunch. Students will need their student identification number in order to pick up a meal. Standard meal prices will be charged and students who receive Free and Reduced-price Meals (FARMs) will continue to pay reduced rates or be exempt from payment. Payment will come from a student’s lunch account. Students who receive meals from the grab and go service at their school are not eligible to receive meals on Mondays from the curbside meal service program.

QACPS will provide additional information as it is issued from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the MD Department of Education.
